below 70C is good.

the cpu can take up to 80 and run but its not good.

it will become unstable at 90+.

+1 for esrever.

The tcase for the Intel® Core™ i7-2600K is 72.6c (not the best way measure). Most boards will shut the processor down at around 85c and the processor has a final shut off called the Thermtrip at 125c.
